    @shoulda been my last Acid trip....
    Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin' to be so quiet? We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin’ you to defy it Lights flicker from the opposite loft In this room the heat pipes just cough The country music station plays soft But there’s nothing, really nothing to turn off Just Louise and her lover so entwined And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind In the empty lot where the ladies play blindman’s bluff with the key chain And the all-night girls they whisper of escapades out on the “D” train We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight Ask himself if it’s him or them that’s really insane Louise, she’s all right, she’s just near She’s delicate and seems like the mirror But she just makes it all too concise and too clear That Johanna’s not here The ghost of ’lectricity howls in the bones of her face Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place Now, little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously And when bringing her name up He speaks of a farewell kiss to me He’s sure got a lotta gall to be so useless and all Muttering small talk at the wall while I’m in the hall How can I explain? Oh, it’s so hard to get on And these visions of Johanna, they kept me up past the dawn Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues You can tell by the way she smiles See the primitive wallflower freeze When the jelly-faced women all sneeze Hear the one with the mustache say, “Jeeze I can’t find my knees” Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule But these visions of Johanna, they make it all seem so cruel The peddler now speaks to the countess who’s pretending to care for him Sayin’, “Name me someone that’s not a parasite and I’ll go out and say a prayer for him” But like Louise always says “Ya can’t look at much, can ya man?” As she, herself, prepares for him And Madonna, she still has not showed We see this empty cage now corrode Where her cape of the stage once had flowed The fiddler, he now steps to the road He writes ev’rything’s been returned which was owed On the back of the fish truck that loads While my conscience explodes The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain

    shoulda been a 1940's movie
    Up on the white verandaShe wears a necktie and a Panama hat Her passport shows a face From another time and place She looks nothing like that And all the remnants of her recent past Are scattered in the wild wind She walks across the marble floor Where a voice from the gambling room is callin' her to come on in She smiles, walks the other way As the last ship sails and the moon fades away From Black Diamond Bay As the morning light breaks open, the Greek comes down And he asks for a rope and a pen that will write Pardon, monsieur, the desk clerk says Carefully removes his fez Am I hearing you right And as the yellow fog is lifting The Greek is quickly heading for the second floor She passes him on the spiral staircase Thinking he's the Soviet Ambassador She starts to speak, but he walks away As the storm clouds rise and the palm branches sway On Black Diamond Bay A soldier sits beneath the fan Doing business with a tiny man who sells him a ring Lightning strikes, the lights blow out The desk clerk wakes and begins to shout Can you see anything Then the Greek appears on the second floor In his bare feet with a rope around his neck While a loser in the gambling room lights up a candle Says, open up another deck But the dealer says, attendez-vous, s'il vous plait As the rain beats down and the cranes fly away From Black Diamond Bay The desk clerk heard the woman laugh As he looked around the aftermath and the soldier got tough He tried to grab the woman's hand Said, here's a ring, it cost a grand She said, that ain't enough Then she ran upstairs to pack her bags While a horse-drawn taxi waited at the curb She passed the door that the Greek had locked Where a handwritten sign read, do not disturb She knocked upon it anyway As the sun went down and the music did play On Black Diamond Bay I've got to talk to someone quick But the Greek said, go away, and he kicked the chair to the floor He hung there from the chandelier She cried, help, there's danger near Please open up the door Then the volcano erupted And the lava flowed down from the mountain high above The soldier and the tiny man were crouched in the corner Thinking of forbidden love But the desk clerk said, it happens every day As the stars fell down and the fields burned away On Black Diamond Bay As the island slowly sank The loser finally broke the bank in the gambling room The dealer said, it's too late now You can take your money, but I don't know how You'll spend it in the tomb The tiny man bit the soldier's ear As the floor caved in and the boiler in the basement blew While she's out on the balcony, where a stranger tells her My darling, je vous aime beaucoup She sheds a tear and then begins to pray As the fire burns on and the smoke drifts away From Black Diamond Bay I was sitting home alone one night in L.A. Watching old Cronkite on the seven o'clock news It seems there was an earthquake that Left nothing but a Panama hat And a pair of old Greek shoes Didn't seem like much was happening So I turned it off and went to grab another beer Seems like every time you turn around There's another hard-luck story that you're gonna hear And there's really nothing anyone can say And I never did plan to go anyway To Black Diamond Bay

    breaks my heart every time...
    I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actressWhen you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress With my father in a casket, I had no plans, yeah And I left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet And it hardened like my heart did when you left town But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant Damn your wife, I'd be your mistress just to have you around But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time While the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me Yes my flesh, it was my currency, but I held true So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce But I've read this script and the costume fits, so I'll play my part I was Cleopatra, I was taller than the rafters But that's all in the past now, gone with the wind Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom It's a bed and a bathroom And a place for the end I won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time

    Going to FTW helped me better understand my Deadhead father
    For the longest time, I had trouble understanding how my father—a stern, quick-to-anger disciplinarian—could also be a Deadhead. So when the Dead announced Fare Thee Well last year, I made sure to buy tickets and fly home to Chicago to attend shows with my dad. I wanted to witness a side of him I knew existed, but never quite understood. And I write about that experience here: https://features.wearemel.com/my-disciplinarian-father-the-deadhead-cc7…

    Forever Grateful, and Thankful
    You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurantYou can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant Walk right in, it's around the back Just a half a mile from the railroad track You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant... This song is called "Alice's Restaurant." It's about Alice, and the restaurant, but "Alice's Restaurant" is not the name of the restaurant, that's just the name of the song. That's why I call the song "Alice's Restaurant." Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago... two years ago, on Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the restaurant. But Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she lives in the church nearby the restaurant, in the bell tower with her husband Ray and Facha, the dog. And livin' in the bell tower like that, they got a lot of room downstairs where the pews used to be, and havin' all that room (seein' as how they took out all the pews), they decided that they didn't have to take out their garbage for a long time. We got up here and found all the garbage in there and we decided that it'd be a friendly gesture for us to take the garbage down to the city dump. So we took the half-a-ton of garbage, put it in the back of a red VW microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction, and headed on toward the city dump. Well, we got there and there was a big sign and a chain across the dump sayin', "This dump is closed on Thanksgiving," and we'd never heard of a dump closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in our eyes, we drove off into the sunset lookin' for another place to put the garbage. We didn't find one till we came to a side road, and off the side of the side road was another fifteen-foot cliff, and at the bottom of the cliff was another pile of garbage. And we decided that one big pile was better than two little piles, and rather than bring that one up, we decided to throw ours down. That's what we did. Drove back to the church, had a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat, went to sleep, and didn't get up until the next morning, when we got a phone call from Officer Obie. He said, "Kid, we found your name on a envelope at the bottom of a half a ton of garbage and I just wanted to know if you had any information about it." And I said, "Yes sir, Officer Obie, I cannot tell a lie. I put that envelope under that garbage." After speakin' to Obie for about forty-five minutes on the telephone, we finally arrived at the truth of the matter and he said that we had to go down and pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the Police Officer Station. So we got in the red VW microbus with the shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the Police Officer Station. Now, friends, there was only one of two things that Obie could've done at the Police Officer Station, and the first was that he could've given us a medal for bein' so brave and honest on the telephone (which wasn't very likely, and we didn't expect it), and the other thing was that he could've bawled us out and told us never to be seen drivin' garbage around in the vicinity again, which is what we expected. But when we got to the Police Officer Station, there was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was both immediately arrested, handcuffed, and I said, "Obie, I can't pick up the garbage with these here handcuffs on." He said: "Shut up kid, and get in the back of the patrol car." And that's what we did . . . sat in the back of the patrol car, and drove to the quote scene of the crime unquote. I wanna tell you 'bout the town of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where this is happenin'. They got three stop signs, two police officers, and one police car, but when we got to the scene of the crime, there was five police officers and three police cars, bein' the biggest crime of the last fifty years and everybody wanted to get in the newspaper story about it. And they was usin' up all kinds of cop equipment that they had hangin' around the Police Officer Station. They was takin' plaster tire tracks, footprints, dog-smellin' prints and they took twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explainin' what each one was, to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach, the getaway, the northwest corner, the southwest corner . . . and that's not to mention the aerial photography! After the ordeal, we went back to the jail. Obie said he was gonna put us in a cell. He said: "Kid, I'm gonna put you in a cell. I want your wallet and your belt." I said, "Obie, I can understand your wantin' my wallet, so I don't have any money to spend in the cell, but what do you want my belt for?" and he said, "Kid, we don't want any hangin's." I said, "Obie, did you think I was gonna hang myself for litterin'?" Obie said he was makin' sure, and, friends, Obie was, 'cause he took out the toilet seat so I couldn't hit myself over the head and drown, and he took out the toilet paper so I couldn't bend the bars, roll the toilet paper out the window, slide down the roll and have an escape. Obie was makin' sure. It was about four or five hours later that Alice--(remember Alice? There's a song about Alice.)--Alice came by and, with a few nasty words to Obie on the side, bailed us out of jail, and we went back to the church, had another Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat, and didn't get up until the next morning, when we all had to go to court. We walked in, sat down, Obie came in with the twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one, sat down. Man came in, said, "All rise!" We all stood up, and Obie stood up with the twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy pictures, and the judge walked in, sat down, with a seein' eye dog and he sat down. We sat down. Obie looked at the seein' eye dog . . . then at the twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one . . . and looked at the seein' eye dog . . . and then at the twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each on and began to cry. Because Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case of American blind justice, and there wasn't nothin' he could do about it, and the judge wasn't gonna look at the twenty-seven 8 by 10 colored glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explainin' what each one was, to be used as evidence against us. And we was fined fifty dollars and had to pick up the garbage... in the snow. But that's not what I'm here to tell you about. I'm here to talk about the draft. They got a buildin' down in New York City called Whitehall Street, where you walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected, infected, neglected and selected! I went down and got my physical examination one day, and I walked in, sat down (got good and drunk the night before, so I looked and felt my best when I went in that morning, 'cause I wanted to look like the All-American Kid from New York City. I wanted to feel like . . . I wanted to be the All-American Kid from New York), and I walked in, sat down, I was hung down, brung down, hung up and all kinds of mean, nasty, ugly things. And I walked in, I sat down, they gave me a piece of paper that said: "Kid, see the psychiatrist in room 604." I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I wanna kill. I wanna kill! I wanna see blood and gore and guts and veins in my teeth! Eat dead, burnt bodies! I mean: Kill. Kill!" And I started jumpin' up and down, yellin' "KILL! KILL!" and he started jumpin' up and down with me, and we was both jumpin' up and down, yellin', "KILL! KILL! KILL! KILL!" and the sergeant came over, pinned a medal on me, sent me down the hall, said "You're our boy". Didn't feel too good about it. Proceeded down the hall, gettin' more injections, inspections, detections, neglections, and all kinds of stuff that they was doin' to me at the thing there, and I was there for two hours... three hours... four hours... I was there for a long time goin' through all kinds of mean, nasty, ugly things, and I was just havin' a tough time there, and they was inspectin', injectin', every single part of me, and they was leavin' no part untouched! Proceeded through, and I finally came to see the very last man. I walked in, sat down, after a whole big thing there. I walked up, and I said, "What do you want?" He said, "Kid, we only got one question: Have you ever been arrested?" And I proceeded to tell him the story of Alice's Restaurant Massacree with full orchestration and five-part harmony and stuff like that, and other phenomenon. He stopped me right there and said, "Kid, have you ever been to court?" And I proceeded to tell him the story of the twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one . . . He stopped me right there and said, "Kid, I want you to go over and sit down on that bench that says 'Group W'." And I walked over to the bench there, and there's... Group W is where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after committin' your special crime. There was all kinds of mean, nasty, ugly-lookin' people on the bench there . . . there was mother-rapers . . . father-stabbers . . . father-rapers! FATHER-RAPERS sittin' right there on the bench next to me! And they was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible and crime fightin' guys were sittin' there on the bench, and the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one . . . the meanest father-raper of them all . . . was comin' over to me, and he was mean and ugly and nasty and horrible and all kinds of things, and he sat down next to me. He said, "Kid, what'd you get?" I said, "I didn't get nothin'. I had to pay fifty dollars and pick up the garbage." He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?" and I said, "Litterin'"' . . . . And they all moved away from me on the bench there, with the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean, nasty things, till I said, "And creatin' a nuisance . . . " And they all came back, shook my hand, and we had a great time on the bench talkin' about crime, mother-stabbin', father-rapin', . . . all kinds of groovy things that we was talkin' about on the bench, and everything was fine. We was smokin' cigarettes and all kinds of things, until the sergeant came over, had some paper in his hand, held it up and said: "KIDSTHISPIECEOFPAPERSGOTFOURTYSVENPAGESTHIRTYSEVENSENTENCESFIFTYEIGHTWORDSWEWANTTOKNOWTHEDETAILSOFTHECRIMETHETIMEOFTHECRIMEANDANYOTHERKINDOFTHINGYOUGOTTOSAYPERTAININGTOANDABOUTTHECRIMEWEWANTTOKNOWTHEARRESTINGOFFICERSNAMEANDANYOTHERTHINGYOUGOTTOSAY . . ." And he talked for forty-five minutes and nobody understood a word that he said. But we had fun fillin' out the forms and playin' with the pencils on the bench there. I filled out the Massacree with the four-part harmony. Wrote it down there just like it was and everything was fine. And I put down my pencil, and I turned over the piece of paper, and there . . . on the other side . . . in the middle of the other side . . . away from everything else on the other side . . . in parentheses . . . capital letters . . . quotated . . . read the following words: "Kid, have you rehabilitated yourself?" I went over to the sergeant. Said, "Sergeant, you got a lot of god-damned gall to ask me if I've rehabilitated myself! I mean . . . I mean . . . I mean that you send . . . I'm sittin' here on the bench . . . I mean I'm sittin' here on the Group W bench, 'cause you want to know if I'm moral enough to join the army, burn women, kids, houses and villages after bein' a litterbug." He looked at me and said, "Kid, we don't like your kind! We're gonna send your fingerprints off to Washington"! And, friends, somewhere in Washington, enshrined in some little folder, is a study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reason I'm singin' you the song now is 'cause you may know somebody in a similar situation. Or you may be in a similar situation, and if you're in a situation like that, there's only one thing you can do: Walk into the shrink wherever you are, just walk in, say, "Shrink, . . . you can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant", and walk out. You know, if one person, just one person, does it, they may think he's really sick and they won't take him. And if two people do it, in harmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them. And if three people do it! Can you imagine three people walkin' in, singin' a bar of "Alice's Restaurant" and walkin' out? They may think it's an organization! And can you imagine fifty people a day? I said FIFTY people a day . . . walkin' in, singin' a bar of "Alice's Restaurant" and walkin' out? Friends, they may think it's a MOVEMENT, and that's what it is: THE ALICE'S RESTAURANT ANTI-MASSACREE MOVEMENT! . . . and all you gotta do to join is to sing it the next time it comes around on the guitar. With feelin'... You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant Walk right in, it's around the back Just a half a mile from the railroad track You can get anything you want at Alice's restaurant...

    boo!
    I scare myself just thinking about youI scare myself when I'm without you I scare myself the moment that you're going I scare myself when I let my thoughts run And when they're running I keep thinking of you And when they're running What can I do? I scare myself, and I don't mean lightly I scare myself, it can get frightening I scare myself, to think what I could do I scare myself it's some kind of voodoo And with that voodoo I keep thinking of you And with that voodoo What can I do? But it's so so very different when we're together And I'm so so much calmer; I feel better Cause the stars already crossed our paths forever And the sooner that you realize it the better And then I'll be with you and I won't scare myself And I'll know what to do and I won't scare myself And my thoughts will run and I won't scare myself And I'll think of you and I won't scare myself

They're gonna have to drag me off the floor... Nestled in between Halloween and turkey day, perfect! That will be one fantastic Friday! Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance With the stars up above in your eyes A fantabulous night to make romance 'Neath the cover of October skies And all the leaves on the trees are falling To the sound of the breezes that blow And I'm trying to please to the calling Of your heart-strings that play soft and low And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush [Chorus:] Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love Well, I wanna make love to you tonight I can't wait 'til the morning has come And I know that the time is just right And straight into my arms you will run And when you come my heart will be waiting To make sure that you're never alone There and then all my dreams will come true, dear There and then I will make you my own And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside And I know how much you want me that you can't hide [Chorus] [Repeat 1st Verse] One more Moondance with you in the moonlight On a magic night La, la, la, la in the moonlight On a magic night Can't I just have one more dance with you my love

love these guys.....music has never been the same without Roxy Music..... Yesterday Well it seemed so cool When I walked you home Kissed goodnight I said "it's love" you said "alright" It's funny how I could never cry Until tonight And you pass by Hand in hand with another guy You're dressed to kill And guess who's dying? Dance away the heartache, dance away the tears Dance away the heartache, dance away the fear Dance away Loneliness Is a crowded room Full of open hearts turned to stone All together all alone All at once My whole world had changed Now I'm in the dark Off the wall Let the strobe light up them all I close my close And dance till dawn Dance away, dance away, dance away Now I know I must walk the line Until I find an open door Off the street onto the floor There was I Many times a fool I hope and pray But not too much Out of reach is out of touch All the way is far enough Dance away the heartache, dance away the tears Dance away the heartache, dance away the fear Dance away the heartache, dance away the tears Dance away the heartache, dance away the fear Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the fear Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the fear Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the tears Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the fear Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the tears Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the fear Dance away the heartache (heartache), dance away the tears Dance away the heartache (heartache)

......it feels like up to me.... Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon We could float among the stars together, you and I For we can fly we can fly Up, up and away My beautiful, my beautiful balloon The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky For we can fly we can fly Up, up and away My beautiful, my beautiful balloon Suspended under a twilight canopy We'll search the clouds for a star to guide us If by some chance you find yourself loving me We'll find a cloud to hide us We'll keep the moon beside us Love is waiting there in my beautiful balloon Way up in the air in my beautiful balloon If you'll hold my hand we'll chase your dream across the sky For we can fly we can fly Up, up and away My beautiful, my beautiful balloon Balloon... Up, up, and away...

I might have really great news soon... You and I in a little toy shop Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got Set them free at the break of dawn 'til one by one they were gone Back at base bugs in the software Flash the message: "something's out there!" Floating in the summer sky Ninety-nine red balloons go by Ninety-nine red balloons Floating in the summer sky Panic bells, it's red alert There's something here from somewhere else The war machine springs to life Opens up one eager eye Focusing it on the sky Where ninety-nine red balloons go by Ninety-nine decision street Ninety-nine ministers meet To worry, worry, super scurry Call the troops out in a hurry This is what we've waited for This is it, boys, this is war The president is on the line As ninety-nine red balloons go by Ninety-nine knights of the air Ride super high-tech jet fighters Everyone's a super hero Everyone's a captain kirk With orders to identify To clarify and classify Scramble in the summer sky Ninety-nine red balloons go by As ninety-nine red balloons go by Ninety-nine dreams I have had In every one a red balloon It's all over and I'm standing pretty In this dust that was a city If I could find a souvenir Just to prove the world was here And here is a red balloon I think of you, and let it go

baby don't you want to go, if you can't make it babe, I'm sure Ozark would want to go...... Shoot high, aim low....Buy low, sell high.... It's high time for a walk on the real side Let's admit the bastards beat us I move to dissolve the corporation In a pool of margaritas So let's switch off all the lights And light up all the Luckies Crankin' up the afterglow 'Cause we're goin' out of business Everything must go Talk about your major pain and suffering Now our self-esteem is shattered Show the world our mighty hidey-ho face As we go sliding down the ladder It was sweet up at the top 'Til that ill wind started blowing Now it's cozy down below 'Cause we're goin' out of business Everything must go We gave it our best shot But keep in mind we got a lot The sky the moon good food and the weather First-run movies - does anybody get lucky twice? Wouldn't it be nice... Tell me can you dig it Miss Fugazy Now it's gone from late to later Frankly I could use a little face time In the service elevator And if Dave from Acquisitions Wants to get in on the action With his Handicam in tow Well we're goin' out of business Everything must go Can it be the sorry sun is rising Guess it's time for us to book it Talk about the famous road not taken In the end we never took it And if somewhere on the way We got a few good licks in No one's ever gonna know 'Cause we're goin' out of business Everything must go

Someone spilled blood many years ago someone spilled blood but do you know that from the backwoods where the Chuck Berrys grow come your long tall daddies of a rock and roll Take me to your backwoods now take me to your backwoods now Spinning' down from the clouds like a tornado spinnin' out of control like a psychedelic soul with a rhythm hittin' harder than Larry Holmes come your long tall daddies of rock and roll Take me to your backwoods now take me to your backwoods now Mr. Uplift Mofo - my man Bo Diddley hit sippin' a bottle of nickle ripple play the lickity split finger licking licks for all you wicked city slick chicks and all you nitty gritty hick we'll make your nipples ripple make you wanna dip your dipple make you wanna soak your hickory stick because my man has a grip on it and I do mean on it which brings to mind a very sinister minister kind of guy a man named Little Richard born to make them bitches stir that's right he'll make the sweet substance drip from the middle of your hillbilly lips and like the farmer milk his cow the Howling Wolf will howl and since times does allow you all can Take me to your backwoods now Take me to your backwoods now Take me to your backwoods now

I'm going up the country, babe, don't you wanna go?I'm going up the country, babe, don't you wanna go? I'm going to some place where I've never been before. I'm going, I'm going where the water tastes like wine. Well, I'm going where the water tastes like wine. We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time. I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away. I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away. All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure can't stay. Now baby, pack your leaving trunk, you know we've got to leave today, Just exactly where we're going I cannot say, but We might even leave the USA, 'Cause there's a brand new game that I want to play. No use of you running, or screaming and crying, 'Cause you've got a home as long as I've got mine.

don't like to go down to flats'Cause I can't park on a hill Instead getting a rolling start I have to pay the bill. I guess I need that city life It sure has lots of style But pretty soon it wears me out And I have to think to smile. I'm thankful for my country home It gives me peace of mind Somewhere I can walk alone And leave myself behind. It's only someone else's potatoes You pickin' someone else's patch And if you go down there anyway It very seldom lasts. I found that out once long ago And it sure got me confused I still don't know which way to go To lose those old spud blues. I'm thankful for my country home It gives me peace of mind Somewhere I can walk alone And leave myself behind.

Not a huge fan, but saw him live....he put the Dick in Dixie and the Cunt in Country...not my cup of tea, but an amusing YouTube video nonetheless.....if only for its sophomoric humor....I prefer the original Hank Williams..... Now for some Kinks..... He don't need no sedatives to ease his troubled mind. At work he is invariably unpleasant and unkind. Why should he care if he is hated in his home, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. He's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. But he ain't gotta home, oh no, And he's as wicked as he can be, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country Where he likes to spend his weekend days. Oh yeah, oh yeah, well all right Well, he got his job when drunken Daddy tumbled down the stairs. From that very day this boy is more than having his share. One of these days I'm gonna knock him off of his throne, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. He's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. And he's oh so smug, oh yeah. He's got everything he needs, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country Where he likes to spend his weekend days. Oh yeah, oh yeah, well all right And he's oh so smug, oh yeah. He's got everything he needs, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. He's gotta house in the country, And a big sports car. But he's socially dead, oh yeah, And it don't matter much to him, 'Cause he's gotta house in the country Where he likes to spend his weekend days. Oh yeah, oh yeah, well all right House in the country House in the country House in the country House in the country

Let's bring this one to a close... My DJ's got the cuts and the beats are on We're comin with the limericks and we're comin' strong And the rhythm's on time to every word and rhyme When it comes to keep it real I keep it really wrong At the risk of sounding crass I would like to mention That I am well aware of your wack intentions To usurp my prose you so and so It's my primary bone of contention I tell you everybody I've had it With all these people with static I'll go insane if it don't rain Sucker MC's are problematic I love it when you hit those switches A curve ball's what my pitch is So here we here we come Like dum ditty dum I keep all five boroughs in stitches The sound sounds sweeter through the echolex It'll spin you around and throw you in a hex Until you feel no pain inside your brain All your worries are soothed by the sound effects You ead it in the Post and the Daily News Listen everybody lets show improve Don't let me begin about heroin Living six feet deep just ain't the move We're giving you soul power I like it sweet and sour When it comes to rhymes and beat designs I'm at the control tower Tell me what makes you so afraid Of all those people you say you hate Just give it one time for your mind And let's try to negotiate [3x]

Seen a man standin' over a dead dog lyin' by the highway in a ditch He's lookin' down kinda puzzled pokin' that dog with a stick Got his car door flung open he's standin' out on highway 31 Like if he stood there long enough that dog'd get up and run Struck me kinda funny seem kinda funny sir to me Still at the end of every hard day people find some reason to believe Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true She said baby I'll work for you everyday and bring my money home to you One day he up and left her and ever since that She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back Struck me kinda funny funny yea indeed how at the end of every hard earned day you can find some reason to believe Take a baby to the river Kyle William they called him Wash the baby in the water take away little Kyle's sin In a whitewash shotgun shack an old man passes away take the body to the graveyard and over him they pray Lord won't you tell us, Tell us what does it mean At the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe Congregation gathers down by the riverside Preacher stands with his bible, groom stands waitin' for his bride Congregation gone and the sun sets behind a weepin' willow tree Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly Wonderin' where can his baby be still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Summer is still trying to hold on in STL. But you can feel that fall air creeping in and taking over. Do you remember the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders While chasing the clouds away Our hearts were ringing In the key that our souls were singing. As we danced in the night, Remember how the stars stole the night away Ba de ya - say do you remember Ba de ya - dancing in September Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day Ba duda, ba duda, ba duda, badu Ba duda, badu, ba duda, badu Ba duda, badu, ba duda My thoughts are with you Holding hands with your heart to see you Only blue talk and love, Remember how we knew love was here to stay Now December found the love we shared in September. Only blue talk and love, Remember the true love we share today Ba de ya - say do you remember Ba de ya - dancing in September Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day There was a Ba de ya - say do you remember Ba de ya - dancing in September Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days The bell was ringing, aha Our souls were singing Do you remember Never a cloudy day There was a Ba de ya - say do you remember Ba de ya - dancing in September Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day There was a Ba de ya - say do you remember Ba de ya - dancing in September Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya ba de ya de ya de ya De ya Ba de ya de ya de ya Ba de ya de ya de ya ba de ya de ya de hope the mountains have treated you well!

Aspen and Boulder have been amazing....the air is mighty thin and pacing ourselves while staying hydrated is essential.... crashed a Charlie Rose private party last nite at Hotel Jerome, met some nice secret service gals and guys, the FTW tee shirt blew my cover, but got a few free drinks and some appetizers out of it.....nothing quite like rubbing elbows with the great and near great..... will be leaving on a jet plane tomorrow, have Sunday to regroup and back in the saddle Monday.... I pick up my smile put it in my pocket Hold it for a while try not to have to drop it Men are not to cry so how am I to stop it Keep it all inside don't show how much she rocked ya Ooh can you feel the same Ooh you gotta love the pain Ooh it looks like rain again Ooh I feel it comin' in The mountains win again The mountains win again Dreams we dreamed at night were never meant to come to life I can't understand the ease she pulled away her hand This time in my life I was hurt enough to care I guess from now on I'll be careful what I share Ooh can you feel the same Ooh ya gotta love the pain Ooh it looks like rain again Yeah feel it comin' in The mountains win again A pocket is no place for a smile anyway Someday I will find love again will blow my mind Maybe it will be that love that got away from me Is there a line to write that could make you cry tonight Can you feel the same Yeah ya gotta love the pain Ooh it looks like rain again Ooh feel it comin' in The mountains win again Ooh the mountains win again

I do love me some Colorado! The hangovers really suck at that elevation though. He was born in the summer of his 27th year Coming home to a place he'd never been before He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again You might say he found a key for every door When he first came to the mountains his life was far away On the road and hanging by a song But the string's already broken and he doesn't really care It keeps changing fast and it don't last for long But the Colorado rocky mountain high I've seen it raining fire in the sky The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye Rocky mountain high He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below He saw everything as far as you can see And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun And he lost a friend but kept his memory Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams Seeking grace in every step he takes His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake And the Colorado rocky mountain high I've seen it raining fire in the sky You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply Rocky mountain high Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more More people, more scars upon the land And the Colorado rocky mountain high I've seen it raining fire in the sky I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly Rocky mountain high It's Colorado rocky mountain high I've seen it raining fire in the sky Friends around the campfire and everybody's high Rocky mountain high

There's something talkin' in the windWhispering through the trees That feeling in my bones again Just puts me right at ease It takes me back to all the times I've been here before But crossroads, old familiar signs Tell me, there's something more Can't explain, there's something strange about the early fall It's a comfort leaving me without a care I remain but everything around me hears the call And tonight, I feel a change in the air The leaves are turning Soon they'll fall, there's a norther blowing in The memories flowin' I recall those changes in the wind But I can never try to understand There's nothing you can hold in your hand Can't explain, there's something strange about the early fall It's a comfort leaving me without a care I remain but everything around me hears the call And tonight, I feel a change in the air Yes, I'll surely feel a change in the air

Glad you made it home safe, hopefully your trip was refreshing. Breathe, breathe in the air Don't be afraid to care Leave but don't leave me Look around, choose your own ground For long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all your touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be Run rabbit run Dig that hole, forget the sun And when at last the work is done Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one For long you live and high you fly But only if you ride the tide And balanced on the biggest wave You race towards an early grave

I ain't racing nowhere....especially toward an early grave... Back safe, working the mines as usual....nice to get away even for a few days.... Built in the belly of junk by the river, my cabin stands; Made from the trash I dug off the heap with my own bare hands. Every night I'm back at the shack, I'm sure no one is there, I'm putting the aerial up, so I can go out on the air... On the air On the air On the air Every morning I'm out at dawn with the dwarfs and tramps For a silent communion lit from above by the sodium lamps. Everyone I meet on the street acts as if I wasn't there, But they're all going to know who I am, 'cos I can go out on the air. Leaving the car down the leafy lane, Turning out Tarzan for my Jungle Jane. Anyone at all, from Captain Zero And his band of superheroes standing by on call. Oh it's not easy, No it's not easy making real friends... Don't give me your steak-reared milkboys, milkboys, Half alive on empty white noise, white noise, I've got power, I'm proud to be loud, my signal goes out clear, I want everybody to know that Mozo is here!

It's a god-awful small affair To the girl with the mousy hair But her mummy is yelling "No" And her daddy has told her to go But her friend is nowhere to be seen Now she walks through her sunken dream To the seat with the clearest view And she's hooked to the silver screen But the film is a saddening bore For she's lived it ten times or more She could spit in the eyes of fools As they ask her to focus on [CHORUS] Sailors fighting in the dance hall Oh man! Look at those cavemen go It's the freakiest show Take a look at the Lawman Beating up the wrong guy Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know He's in the best selling show Is there life on Mars? It's on Amerika's tortured brow That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow Now the workers have struck for fame 'Cause Lennon's on sale again See the mice in their million hordes From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads Rule Britannia is out of bounds To my mother, my dog, and clowns But the film is a saddening bore 'Cause I wrote it ten times or more It's about to be writ again As I ask you to focus on [CHORUS] Dring-dring-dring...... [Mind the phone]

Only love can make it rainThe way the beach is kissed by the sea Only love can make it rain Like the sweat of lovers layin' in the fields Love, reign o'er me Love, reign o'er me Rain on me, rain on me Only love can bring the rain That makes you yearn to the sky Only love can bring the rain That falls like tears from on high Love, reign o'er me Rain on me, rain on me Love, reign o'er me Rain on me, rain on me On the dry and dusty road The nights we spend apart alone I need to get back home to cool, cool rain I can't sleep, and I lay, and I think The night is hot and black as ink Oh God, I need a drink of cool, cool rain Love, reign o'er me Reign o'er me, o'er me, o'er me Love, reign o'er me, o'er me Love

It's hard to match the intensity of that song, pleading-demanding, Rain On Me! Yesterday I heard the rain Whispering your name Asking where you’d gone It fell softly from the clouds On the silent crowds As I wandered on Out of doorways black umbrellas Came to pursue me Faceless people as they passed Were looking through me No one knew me Yesterday I shut my eyes Face up to the skies Drinking in the rain But your image still was there Floating in the air Brighter than a flame Yesterday I saw a city Full of shadows without pity And I heard the steady rain Whispering your name Whispering your name

I'm only happy when it rains I'm only happy when it's complicated And though I know you can't appreciate it I'm only happy when it rains You know I love it when the news is bad And why it feels so good to feel so sad I'm only happy when it rains Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me I'm only happy when it rains I feel good when things are going wrong I only listen to the sad, sad songs I'm only happy when it rains I only smile in the dark My only comfort is the night gone black I didn't accidentally tell you that I'm only happy when it rains You'll get the message by the time I'm through When I complain about me and you I'm only happy when it rains Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down on me (Pour your misery down) Pour your misery down You can keep me company As long as you don't care I'm only happy when it rains You wanna hear about my new obsession? I'm riding high upon a deep depression I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me) I'm only happy when it rains (Pour some misery down on me).

She rocks!I got that CD in junior high. I asked my dad to buy it for me, he said, "you want me to buy you garbage?!" The leaves of brown came tumbling down Remember, in september in the rain The sun went out just like a dying ember In september in the rain. To every word of love I heard, you whisper The raindrops seem to play a sweet refrain. Though spring is here, to me it's still september Ooh, that september in the rain. To every word of love I heard, you whisper The raindrops seem to play a sweet refrain. Though spring is here, to me it's still september That september, in the rain That september, in the rain That september, in the rain That september, in the rain.

Goin' to the city, got you on my mind,Country sure is pretty, I'll leave it all behind, This is my decision, I'm comin' home to stay this time. 'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city, Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city. Breathin' all the clean air, sittin' in the sun, When I get my train fare, I'll get up and run. I'm ready for the city, air pollution here I come! 'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city. I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man. I'm gonna hit the grit just as fast as I can. I'll get off on Main Street, step into the crowd, Sidewalk under my feet, yeah, traffic's good and loud. When I see my inner city child, I'll be walkin' on a cloud. 'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city... I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city) I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city) I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A crazy fool, (Fool for the city) I'm a fool yea, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) I ain't no country boy, woo! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) Woo! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) A Fool for the city (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) Whoo! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) ... Night night.....

Well I used to know someone fairShe had orange ribbons in her hair She was such a trip, she was hardly there But I loved her, just the same There was rain in our window The FM set was ragged But she could talk, yeah We learned to speak And one year has gone by Such a long, long road to seek it All we did was break and freak it We had all that lovers ever had We just blew it and I'm not sad Well, I'm mad and I'm bad And two years have gone by Now her world was bright orange And the fire glowed And her friend had a baby And she lived with us Yeah, we broke through the window Yeah, we knocked on the door Her phone would not answer Yeah, but she's still home Now her father has passed over And her sister is a star And her mother smokes diamonds And she sleeps out in the car Yeah, but she remembers Chicago The musicians and guitars And grass by the lake And people who laughed And made her poor heart ache Now we live down in the valley We work out on the farm We climb up to the mountains And everything's fine and I'm still here And you're still there and we're still around have a good evening!

Yesterday - well it seemed so coolWhen I walked you home, kissed goodnight I said "it's love" you said "all right" It's funny how I could never cry Until tonight and you pass by Hand in hand with another guy You're dressed to kill and guess who's dying' Dance away the heartache Dance away the tears - Dance away Loneliness is a crowded room Full of open hearts turned to stone All together all alone All at once my whole world had changed Now I'm in the dark, off the wall Let the strobe light up them all I close my eyes and dance till dawn - Dance away Now I know I must walk the line Until I find an open door There was I - many times a fool I hope and pray, but not too much Out of reach is out of touch All the way is far enough - Dance away

We had broken up for good just an hour beforeUh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh Now I'm staring at the bodies as there's dancin' 'cross the floor Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh And then the band slowed the tempo and the music gets me down Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh It was the same old song with the melancholy sound Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh They don't write 'em like that anymore They just don't write 'em like that anymore We'd been living together for a million years Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh But now it feel so strange (out in the atmospheres?) Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh Now I'm staring at the bodies as they dancin' so slow Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh They don't write 'em like that anymore They just don't write 'em like that anymore Now I wind up staring at an empty glass Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh Cause its so easy to say that you'll forget your past Uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh uh They don't write 'em like that anymore, no! They just don't write 'em like that anymore They don't write 'em like that anymore They just don't write 'em like that anymore

OOh Wee... that air is crisp! The summer sun is fading as the year grows old And darker days are drawing near The winter winds will be much colder Now you're not here. I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky And one by one they disappear. I wish that I was flying with them Now you're not here Like a song through the trees you came to love me Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away Through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way You always loved this time of year. Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now Cause you're not here Like a song through the trees you came to love me Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes As if to hide a lonely tear My life will be forever autumn 'Cause you're not here!

Leaves are falling all around, It's time I was on my way. Thanks to you, I'm much obliged for such a pleasant stay. But now it's time for me to go. The autumn moon lights my way. For now I smell the rain, and with it pain, and it's headed my way. Sometimes I grow so tired, but I know I've got one thing I got to do... [Chorus] Ramble On, And now's the time, the time is now, to sing my song. I'm goin' 'round the world, I got to find my girl, on my way. I've been this way ten years to the day, Ramble On, Gotta find the queen of all my dreams. Got no time to for spreadin' roots, The time has come to be gone. And to' our health we drank a thousand times, it's time to Ramble On. [Chorus] Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear. How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air. T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah. [Chorus] Gonna ramble on, sing my song. Gotta keep-a-searchin' for my baby... Gonna work my way, round the world. I can't stop this feelin' in my heart Gotta keep searchin' for my baby. I can't find my bluebird!

Autumn in New York Why does it seem so inviting? Autumn in New York It spells the thrill of first-knighting Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds In canyons of steel They're making me feel I'm home It's autumn in New York That brings the promise of new love Autumn in New York Is often mingled with pain Dreamers with empty hands May sigh for exotic lands It's autumn in New York It's good to live it again Lovers that bless the dark On benches in Central Park It's autumn in New York It's good to live it again

A beautiful instrumental by Buffalo's own Spyrogyra....but I digress.... The opening line of the next song was quoted by Springsteen every fall before he launched into Rosalita.... The night was clear and the moon was yellow And the leaves came tumbling down... Come on out Rosie, wherever you are..... But I digress again.... I was standing on the corner When I heard my bulldog bark He was barkin' at the two men Who were gamblin' in the dark It was Stagger Lee and Billy Two men who gambled late Stagger Lee threw seven Billy swore that he threw eight Stagger Lee told Billy I can't let you go with that You have won all my money And my brand new stetson hat Stagger Lee went home And he got his forty-four Said, I'm goin' to the barroom Just to pay that debt I owe Go Stagger Lee [Instrumental Interlude] Stagger Lee went to the barroom And he stood across the barroom door He said, nobody move And he pulled his forty-four Stagger Lee, cried Billy Oh, please don't take my life I've three little children And a very sickly wife Stagger Lee shot Billy Oh, he shot that poor boy so bad Till the bullet came through Billy And it broke the bartender's glass What that opening line has to do with either song? , I have no clue....

Childhood living is easy to do The things you wanted I bought them for you Graceless lady you know who I am You know I can't let you slide through my hands Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away I watched you suffer a dull aching pain Now you decided to show me the same No sweeping exits or offstage lines Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie I have my freedom but I don't have much time Faith has been broken, tears must be cried Let's do some living after we die Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day

You're dangerous 'cause you're honest You're dangerous, you don't know what you want Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot For any spirit to haunt Hey hey sha la la Hey hey You're an accident waiting to happen You're a piece of glass left there on the beach Well you tell me things I know you're not supposed to Then you leave me just out of reach Hey hey sha la la Hey hey sha la la Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna drown in your blue sea Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee Well you stole it 'cause I needed the cash And you killed it 'cause I wanted revenge Well you lied to me 'cause I asked you to Baby, can we still be friends Hey hey sha la la Hey hey sha la la Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna drown in your blue sea Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee Oh, the deeper I spin Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin Took a drive in the dirty rain To a place where the wind calls your name Under the trees the river laughing at you and me Hallelujah, heavens white rose The doors you open I just can't close Don't turn around, don't turn around again Don't turn around, your gypsy heart Don't turn around, don't turn around again Don't turn around, and don't look back Come on now love, don't you look back Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna drown in your blue sea Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses Who's gonna take the place of me Who's gonna ride your wild horses Who's gonna tame the heart of thee

Wild as a coastal boranca, swift as the wind blowin' freeWith two eyes like fire brands that glow in the night Somewhere up there he's waitin' for me And he knows that I'm coming for him I just can't rest 'til I find That raven black stallion, who wears no man's brand With a wild restless spirit like mine They call him Caballo Diablo Half horse and half devil they say Caballo Diablo the outlaw Of the blanca Sierra Madre Two men before tried to take him They had their chance one by one But each met his fate when those flashin' black hooves Brought death 'neath the Mexican sun Still I can't leave I must find him You fool of a horse can't you see I may be half man, but the other half's devil And you're just exactly like me [refrain] Even the breeze has stopped movin' Hush now - be still Don't make a sound and stay close to the ground Cause he's waitin' just over that hill Downwind behind him move quickly Do it fast now, he's startin' to stir Grab a hand full of mane and up onto his back And start breaking him down with my spurs But try as he will he can't shake me As over the preface we go To spill the lifes blood of a horse and a man On the rocky Sierra below [refrain]

SEARS PONCHO! Always alone Never with a herd Prettiest mare I've ever seen You'll have to take my word I'm going to catch that horse if I can And when I do I'll give her my brand Well, I was up on Stony Ridge After this chestnut mare Been chasing her for weeks Oh, I'd catch a glimpse of her every once in a while Taking her meal, or bathing Fine lady This one day I happened to be real close to her I saw her standing over there So I snuck up on her nice and easy Got my rope out And I flung it in the air! I'm going to catch that horse if I can And when I do I'll give her my brand And we'll be friends for life She'll be just like a wife I'm going to catch that horse if I can We were falling down this crevice About about a mile down, it seemed And I looked down and I see this red thing below us coming up real fast And it's our reflection that's This little pool of water about six feet wide and one foot deep We were falling down right through it We hit, we splashed it dry That's when I lost my hold and she got away But I'm gonna try to get her again some day! I'm going to catch that horse if I can And when I do I'll give her my brand And we'll be friends for life She'll be just like a wife I'm going to catch that horse I'm going to catch that horse I'm going to catch that horse if I can I'm going to catch that horse if I can I'm going to catch that horse if I can
